Faulty battery monitor?

If it's a NiCad, consistant recharging when the cell isn't discharged to the 
recommended "discharged" voltage can cause what is 
known as "memory effect", where the battery will never charge above that 
partially-discharged state at which it been consistantly 
recharged from.  Also, if a NiCad is allowed to discharge below a certain voltage, 
polarity reversal can happen.  Most modern gear 
will use NiMH or Li-ion cells nowadays, because such cells do not have these problems. 
 Some manufacturers using cheezy parts and 
other cut corners in quality do still use NiCad cells though [if they were shoddy 
there, where else were they shoddy?]

Main question: is it under warranty?
